Research Spotlight

Andrew Tsourkas

Andrew Tsourkas
Associate Professor, Bioengineering

Diseases, such as cancer, are often diagnosed using imaging scans that harness technology like Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging. Combining nanotechnology with recent discoveries in the molecular and chemical properties of cell growth in disease, Andrew Tsourkas is creating novel imaging agents that will detect disease at its very early stages. By harnessing technology to “tag” an altered molecular profile associated with diseased cells, new formulations of iron oxide- and gadolinium-based nanoparticles are attracted to a disease site and show up in scans at the time of early molecular changes in cells, rather than needing larger groups of diseased cells to form as we do today. This is a major advancement over current technologies, facilitating early detection and the increasingly effective treatment of diseases.


Student Awards
